Raised Bill 634: Limiting Educational Authority
Joint Education Committee
This bill would have restricted who may conduct home instruction in Connecticut. Current law permits any person having control of a child to make educational decisions for a child, including the decision to teach the child at home, but Raised Bill No. 634 would have limited this to parents or guardians. This means that grandparents and other relatives of a child would not have been permitted to homeschool a child unless they were appointed legal guardians by court order.
